Hi. My name's Dmitrii, from Ukraine. I've recently read UNSCRIPTED and it brought me here. I wouldn't say I live a scripted life in the sense that you imagine, but I'm scripted nonetheless. After I dropped out of University in 2014, I haven't been able to find a steady job, until recently. I've been working remotely here and there, doing grunt work, post, upload, that kind of stuff, until I secured my job as a teacher. It's 100% remote job, so I don't have to go to the office etc. and yet within the first chapters of the book, I felt like something was wrong and my life still feels scripted. I love communicating and teaching people and makes me feel good, knowing that I create some value in people's lives. I work around 3-4 hours a day and though the schedule sucks, it's been one year already.

I had several attempts to start a business online, needless to say the all failed. Having now read the book I realize how wrong I was about how to even think about business, how to think about entrepreneurship and what it even is. My every business attempt, unbeknownst to me was about creating value, but my inability to focus and grind to get results was a recipe for disaster every time.

I come to this forum with a goal of educating myself, training in seeing value, training in seeing problems and discovering opportunities and most importantly I'm tired of everybody around me saying to get a real job, you're a failure, because you didn't graduate, time to start a family. I want out. It would be a lie to say that motivation for my success is not a desire to prove everybody around me wrong and to see people living their "right"(that's what we would call it here) lives witness the script fail them.

I apologize, if I wasn't cohesive enough. I'm not a native speaker.

Perfect English. Thanks for your intro and welcome.

If you're a natural teacher then consider scaling what's already keeping a roof over your head? How can you scale what you're currently doing so that it helps even more people?

The "300 surveys" call in my sig might help.

Andy, thanks. It is a good idea and I thought about it. But the thing is I work in this really innovative company that offers a great online platform for learning, everything is interactive and fancy, they grow 300% every year.
But, with all things being where they are, some things are missing and I've seen many students dissatisfied for various reasons. Price for one is rather high. For students from Russia it's relatively okay, but Ukraine, Belarus, Kazakhstan, people are not thrilled and it's hard for them to pay for classes and they go somewhere else 95% of the time. All this gets me thinking that there's a clear opportunity here. As you can clearly see, right?

I'll definitely take a look at what you recommend, Andy. Thank you.
